The largest ever dredging and land reclamation project in DEME’s history – the Abu Qir Port in Egypt – is moving forward.

DEME said that this capital project includes the reclamation of 1,000 hectares of new land. It also involves deepening of the port’s approach channel to 23 m and dredging of a turning basin to 22 m.

Within the project, an enormous volume of more than 150m cu m will be dredged.

The marine works, including 6,800m of quay walls for new berths, 8,800 m of breakwaters and soil improvement works, will be executed by DEME’s consortium partner GIECO, Egypt’s leading marine engineering company. 

The project is due for completion in 2023.
